Brighter news

Over the past couple of days Terry has improved. The fluid is slowly diminishing and he is feeling a little better. There is still a long way to go.
Some of you have expressed a wish to send a card. If you would like to please forward c/-
190 Elsenham Street, Southfields, SW185NR, England.
Visitors are still off the agenda as are flowers or gifts.
We took Terry outside for a short time on Saturday and he really enjoyed the bit of sunshine.
Quality of care remains excellent.

Latest on TJ

Unfortunately the news is not as good as we would like at the moment. Terry has had a bit of a setback with his lungs holding fluid. Doctors are doing everything possible to remove this which will assist in his breathing. He is currently very short of breath. At the moment he is stable and although we are impatient his recovery is a very slow process.
We do appreciate all your thoughts and emails and I apologise that I am unable to respond directly and answer your questions. I simply do not have enough time. Each day I give him an update on your messages and he is grateful for the care.
I cannot say often enough how good the staff of the hospital are. Not only technically but also compassionately. People often complain about hospitals but we are certainly not unhappy with the service.

My apologies for the delay in an update on Terrys condition. Things are quite hectic here.
Unfortunately Terrys recovery from the heart attack has not been plain sailing. He developed an infection, which is slowly responding to drugs and has an issue with fluid in the lung.
Diabetes is adding yet another complication.
Good news is he is responding to the treatment albeit slowly.
He remains in high care and cannot have visitors, card etc so here is the best place to leave your messages.
He really appreciates all the care and concern you have shown however he really needs time for his body to heal before he greets the world again
The hospital staff are nothing less than sensational. We could not ask for better doctors or nursing staff and are very grateful for all they are doing.
I will attempt to post an occassional update and thank you for your patience.

As Terry cannot be reached by phone or visits, we have placed a space for you to send a message if you would like to.
He will get the messages as soon as he is able and I am sure he will appreciate your thoughts.

Good wishes

As many are aware, Terry recently suffered a heart attack whilst in the UK. His condition is stable and we are confident things will be well. He is unable to receive either visitors or phone calls so we would appreciate your patience.
Terry has expressed concern for those who were to attend his spin clinics and apologises for the inconvenience this may have created for you.
We have been inundated with good wishes from people all over the world and would like to say thank you, we really appreciate the care and concern.
I am sure Terry will post a blog as soon as he is able.
Again, thank you to all
